hey there...

My name is Holli True and I am a High School Senior Portrait Photographer based in Eugene, Oregon.  I love nothing more than sharing my passion and heart for working with teen girls. This is what inspired me to become an industry educator and why I created the Evoke Senior Photography Workshop!

Specializing your photography can be a VERY daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be! You should build a business that you love, otherwise, what’s the point? When I started my photography business, I was a full-blown Generalist. I lacked focus and direction. I photographed everything. And I mean everything. My marketing was all over the […]

Engage, Encourage, Engage

PHOTOGRAPHY TIP: ENGAGE, ENCOURAGE, ENGAGE The best photography tip for capturing authentic expressions and images full of life, is engagement and encouragement!

Do you ever have those days (weeks, months…) that you feel like you’re tirelessly treading water, barely staying afloat? You’re not swimming or progressing toward anywhere or anything. You’re basically stagnant. That has been me lately. I’ve had a stirring from within for awhile now and it has me rethinking, revamping and reworking my business […]
